Angel Sightings


Campers had the chance to take a sleigh ride and see different parts of Camp.

Camp Angel (from the Angel On My Shoulder Foundation) was here this past weekend. This an on-going camp for young people that have family members affected by cancer. They utilize Camp’s facilities throughout the year and have been coming up for a winter camp for at least the past four years. They provide their own staff and activities; Camp augments where needed with staffing support and programming.

It is fun to have younger folks running around. They bring a level of energy and vitality back to Camp that is here in spades during the summer, but can wane in the colder months. They arrived amidst our weekend cold snap, but came prepared with winter gear and clothing. It was entertaining watching some of them waddle outdoors bundled up like a fragile, glass vase packaged for shipment in bubble wrap.

There was a ton of activity throughout the weekend, the campers were never at a loss for enjoyable things to do. There were horse drawn sleigh rides, ice-fishing, rock climbing, snowmobiling, face-panting and of course, Don’s cooking. They also brought in a juggler and animals from the Peck’s Wildlife Center for evening entertainment. These kids certainly experienced the good life.

Along with sleigh rides, Angel campers were able to take snowmobile rides and catch fish on Boulder.  Plus, it would not be winter if there was not sledding.
